When talking about the 2021 NCAA college football season, it's tough not to think of the Alabama Crimson Tide's dominance. A 12-1 record and SEC Championship victory led the Crimson Tide to No. 1 status ahead of their CFP semifinal matchup against the Cincinnati Bearcats at the Cotton Bowl Classic.

Oddsmakers are certainly high on Alabama to win a National Championship, with FanDuel Sportsbook favoring the Crimson Tide to do so at +120 odds.

How Many Championships Has Alabama Won?

Keeping that in mind, is winning the College Football Playoff something Alabama has done before?

Alabama National Championship History

No school has had more success than Alabama. The Crimson Tide have claimed the college football national championship 18 times, with the most recent victory coming last season over the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Overall, Alabama has qualified for the College Football Playoff in each of the seven times that it's been held, making the finals in five of those instances.

Oddsmakers don't seem to think that Alabama will have an issue with Cincinnati at the Cotton Bowl Classic. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently listing the Crimson Tide as the massive 14-point favorites ahead of Friday's game.
